Available in a wide range of colours including most British Standards, RAL and special colours to customer requirements.
The preferred method of surface preparation for steel is abrasive blasting to BS4232 or equivalent followed by the removal of any dust or other residues. Painting should then be carried out within four hours. If oxidisation has occurred before priming the surface should be re-blasted. If shot blasting is not possible, clean and degrease the steel substrate. Rust burrs and oily residues should be removed completely. Sharp edges at welded seams should be ground down. Weld splatter, dust, scale, etc. should be removed. The resultant surface should be dry and free from lamination and dust.
Pro-Tect High Build Sheen Primer/Finish may be applied directly to a clean, weathered galvanised surface. However, new (bright) galvanised steel may be oiled or chemically treated. This surface layer must be cleaned and degreased and then tested by applying a ‘T’ Wash to a small area. If the treated area turns entirely black, paint can be applied directly to the metal, if the colour change is uneven or fails to occur degrease and repeat the test.
When applied over Plastisol coated steel, the existing surface should be thoroughly washed and allowed to dry. Any remaining contamination should be removed by means of a suitable de-greaser and wiped with clean cloths or disposable paper towels. Any localised repairs or damage should be sanded to remove any loose or flaky material until a sound edge is achieved. When overcoating Plastisol coated finishes, there is a tendency for its plasticisers to migrate into the paint system and become tacky. This effect can be minimised by applying a coat of Pronto QD Primer allowing a minimum of 30 minutes before overcoating.
Do not apply or dry when the air or substrate temperature is below 5°C or in excess of 30°C otherwise film appearance and coating properties may be adversely affected. Surface temperature must also be a minimum of 3 °C above dew point. Outdoors preparation, painting and drying should only be undertaken during good weather conditions and never when rain is imminent or on days when a drop in temperature could result in condensation forming on the paint during the initial drying period or overnight. Mix thoroughly before use. Best results will be achieved using a power mixer.
